Sol-Gel Technology for Thin Films, Fibers, Preforms, Electronics and Specialty Shapes
This book covers the principles, developments, techniques and applications of sol-gel processing. With a particular focus on industrial practice, the book covers not only the fundamentals of the process, but also evaluates current products and discusses future opportunities - both in the short and long term.
Useful for both an industrial and academic audience in a wide range of fields, the book is divided into intuitive sections for ease of reference, covering thin films, fibers and special applications such as performs, micro-balloons and electronics.
Comprehensively updated for the second edition, entirely new chapters have also been added to cover the latest developments in the field, including ferroelectric films, optical waveguides, nanocomposites and aerogels.
AudienceA broad audience of materials scientists, chemists, and engineers in academic and industrial R&D.
